Here we go...
Pre-Show Dark Match:
"The Double R Superstar" Randy Royal b. Eddie Diamond (w/"The Hype Man" Timmy Danger). A funny slip-up by Terry Boddie who called Randy the "Rated R Superstar" before correcting himself. Royal had the quick start on this match until he ran off the ropes and Danger grabbed his foot, temporarily distracting him enough for Diamond to get some shots in. It wasn't enough, though, as Royal came back and finished him off with the "Royal Treatment" for the pin. MY TAKE: Royal didn't let his loss against Crimson keep him down as he came back strong with a victory tonight. What does the future hold next for Double R?
OVW Southern Tag Team Title Match: The Best Team Ever ("Mr. Pec-Tacular" Jessie Godderz & Rudy Switchblade) [c] vs. Michael Hayes & James "Moose" Thomas
Backstage, we see the Mobile Homers talking about Adam's opportunity to be the final entrant in the Nightmare Rumble. They ask each other about the "rocket fuel", but neither one of them brought it. Brittany DeVore is sitting behind them with a glass of it and apparently she decided to try some herself. Ted asks if she's okay as Fabiano Rolento-to-to makes his television debut and says hello. He asks Brittany her name as Heidi Lovelace enters the room. Fabiano says "uno momento" and tells them he will NOT be back as he follows Heidi. We then see Dylan Bostic sitting next to Taeler Hendrix with a guitar, as Ryan Howe walks in. Taeler has the googly eyes for Howe, and then yells at Dylan to keep practicing.
Crimson totally dominated this match with a series of power moves. AK got in a dropkick and a couple shots, but tried charging after Crimson and was caught in Red Sky. WINNER: CRIMSON by pinfall. MY VIEW: It's hard to bet against an "IMPACT" player like Crimson in the upcoming Nightmare Rumble at SNS.
Just like Taeler's match last week with Jessie Belle, Taeler and Heidi were in an all out brawl and the referee had no choice but to call this match off. NO CONTEST. MY VIEW: The women's division in OVW has gone crazy. Is there something in the water in their locker room? Whatever the case may be, the ladies have it out for each other and are looking to prove who the queen bee is.
It's hard to do a write-up on a battle royal style match where all the participants are trying to eliminate one another, so I will give you the highlights as well as the order of elimination. The match started with Alex Silva & Jason Wayne. After a minute, Wayne's BS 2.0 colleague, Joe Coleman entered and they double teamed Silva, trying to eliminate him. After another minute, Brandon Espinosa entered to even the odds, even though it was every man for himself. After another minute, Ryan Howe rocked his way into the ring and eliminated Joe Coleman.
This ended the TV taping.
